I had the same problem for months then my son told me to get a photo compression app and it did the trick.threedotspoons wrote: ↑Wed Jun 06, 2018 9:23 amSorry guys but I am having difficulties downloading a pic. Keeps saying the image is too large. Any ideas how to fix this?
I've read that blank ink is the equivalent to like 40,000 plus grit. So after using the 306 UF I strop on my newspaper paddle strop. Light strokes. Works great. I guess in my head the newspaper wrapped around the hard maple makes sense since it is a consistent medium that matches the hardness of my stones. If that makes sense? In the end...it works. And it doesn't hurt that master blade smith Murray Carter uses newspaper to strop with.
Take care and stay sharp!
Go to the Apple App site and type in compression app in the search window and a bunch should come up. As I recall some are free and some are not. I believe the one a got was free but I ended up paying to not have to have all the adds pop up with it, wasn't much though.threedotspoons wrote: ↑Wed Jun 06, 2018 9:10 pmSorry guys, no luck in posting a pic of my newspaper strop. Still saying the image is too large. I guess I'll have to follow Holeshot's sons advice and download a photo compression app. How the hell do I do that? Say that backwards and it sounds like a revolutionary chant: "That do I do...hell the how! That do I do...hell the how!" Stay sharp everybody.
What about the modern high alloy steels would prevent newspaper from working as a strop? What about the recent sprint run steels like HAP40, V-Toku 2 or Rex 45? What do you recommend for stropping instead?
